|History||It is a little known fact that in Unova, there are a few select breeders who specifically breed the agreed 'starter Pokemon' throughout the region. These newborns are then transferred to designated professors, then gifted to beginner trainers as their first Pokemon. |
And that was how Leto came to be. The young Snivy, however, was bred by an inexperienced breeder, meaning he was rather weak and sickly compared to his other starter counterparts. Time and time again, trainers would leave with either a Tepig or an Oshawott. Though optimistic, his hope dwindled as he was constantly overlooked. The professor was debating releasing the Snivy into the wild to offer him a chance at life, as he was slowly maturing and itching to explore. But the day he was planning on releasing him, a little girl by the name of Jennifer arrived. She saw the young Snivy and fell in love, and the feeling was mutual. And so, (although delayed), the newly named Leto began his adventure.
Jennifer's goal in the beginning was to eventually challenge the Pokemon League, but after the third or fourth gym battle, she slowly began to dislike battling. She realized that she simply enjoyed the bonding that battling offered. Now partnered with the recently-evolved Servine, they journeyed simply to see the sights.
Music was their wavelength. They listened to music from various genres and attended multiple concerts on their travels. But pretty soon, they had seen it all in Unova, so Jennifer purchased a ship ticket and they sailed out to Kanto. The pair (along with three other Pokemon on her team) settled down in Saffron. Leto had the best time of his life, discovering everything he could about the large city and spending his nights with Jennifer.
But one day, Jennifer went to the store and never came home.
The other Pokemon, after days of Jennifer being a 'no-show,' snuck out of the house to search for her or release themselves from her altogether. However, Leto stayed, trusting that his trainer would soon arrive back home.
But he was forced to leave when a rogue Arbok detected his scent and burst into his once-beloved home. It rank of death and had curious, frothing saliva dripping from its maw. Frightened, the Servine ran far from Saffron, but not before grabbing the headphones of his trainer and slipping them around his neck as a reminder.
He encountered many more Pokemon like the one that flushed him from home, and learned that they were diseased mutants intent on killing. He hid out where he could, searching for Jennifer in the new dark, unfamiliar world, traveling alone for the first time in his short life.
|Appearance||"Servine is a slim bipedal Pokémon that is primarily green with a cream underside, and narrow red eyes. It has a yellow V-shaped structure that starts at the chest and extends behind the shoulders. Servine has short limbs and a small crest protruding from the back of its head. Three palmate leaves grow along its back and tail." |
Despite the Epidemic, Leto has remained surprisingly slim and healthy- a true credit to his species. Ironically, his inexperience with survival tactics has led to this, as he stays within the throng of a passing group or within cities and towns where food and shelter are easy to come by. His red eyes are often wide and bright, and his mouth pulled up in a lazily sly grin as he greets fellow survivors. Leto has an air of attitude and an almost standoffish vibe, but in reality, he is a friendly sort. Around his neck he holds the headphones from his beloved Jennifer, always kept clean and at a generous distance from anything that could cause them harm. He'll obsessively tap them often to ensure they're firmly secure, akin to a human with their wallet. The cord, though, has been long since disconnected to avoid becoming a hazard.
|Personality||Leto, regarding the Epidemic, is astonishingly laid back. His optimisim leads him to believe that the virus will cease soon and his wonderful life with Jennifer will continue. |
Leto is the definiton of a hopeless romantic. The Epidemic actually gives him a sliver of hope; the cliche of finding 'the one' in the midst of tragedy. His flirtatious nature comes off as corny and cheesy, proving that chivalry is not dead.
The Servine is rather calm and curious, however, sometimes this comes to a fault. He has a tendency to blurt out things without thinking. This can sometimes lead to him coming off as rude, but it is merely him being naive. He easily becomes embarassed and sheepish in many situations, and it is rather comical to see a Servine--a species known for their confidence--stutter and stumble over their apology.
